MAP ADJUSTMENTS
RIVER CITY
  • Domination Circle moved and Radius increased to 600m
  • South spawns adjusted



STORE UPDATES
  • Fixed hero MC prices for Crael and Bolt (we won’t be retroactively changing any purchases or taking away MC for players who bought these at a discount)
  • Released Longbow for MC (Spitfire is a Legend and will release at a later date for MC)
  • Released Blight and Gorewing for MC


BUG FIXES
  • Fixed a bug where Hashké, Abaddon, Warlord, and Kasai show as different mechs in their skill trees and could load other builds of their chassis variants
  • Fixed a bug with the Stone Rhino where decals would shift after you placed them on the mech (we plan on expanding this fix to the Longbow in the future)
  • Fixed new weapon appearances on multiple mechs where they would call inconsistent geometry. We will continue to work on these bugs as they arise, though players can still use the weapons the same if the weapons do call incorrect barrels.
CLAN BEAM LASER
  • Heat scale (ghost heat) mechanics now function properly and can no longer be circumvented by a delayed firing pattern. The penalty no longer applies as a heat spike and generated heat per seconds penalty is applied properly.
MAGSHOT AND AP GAUSS RIFLE AMMO
  • Magshot and AP Gauss ammo no longer cause internal damage if they are destroyed causing an ammo explosion event
SKILL TREE/MAGAZINE CAPACITY
  • Magazine capacity nodes now give a +4 bonus to PAC/8 (instead of +2) equivalent to two extra shots per node


Patch Files (Direct Download)
To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.

Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.

This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.


  • Download the above file(s)
  • For sake of ease, we recommend creating a dedicated folder for the patch file(s), such as 'MWO Patch Cache'
  • You do not need to unzip or unpack the patch file(s)
  • Launch the MWO Portal
  • Select the three horizontal lines in the top left of the Portal Window
  • Choose the 'Specify Patch File Cache' option
  • In the field that appears, paste or enter the location in which you saved the patch file(s) and hit OK
  • For example, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MWO Patch Cache
  • Click the blue Patch button
  • The launcher will now check the Patch Cache folder you defined. If it locates the required patch files, it will unpack and use those files to apply the patch
  • Once the patch is complete, launch the game
